CWD Deer

As preparations for deer hunting season get underway in Wisconsin and other states, federal health officials are out with a new study showing common household bleach can kill the deadly proteins known as prions that remain on hunting knives and meat processing equipment.

The study confirms a longstanding recommendation by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources: Hunters, deer processors and taxidermists should soak tools in a bleach solution.
